(as of [price_update_date] – Details)
Kinesio Tex Gold FP – ReEvolution-ary Muscle & Joint Support Tape
Developed exclusively for Kinesio professionals. Backed by research and development since the early 1970’s, Kinesio continues to make advancements in technology that continues the ReEvolution and fulfills the original vision; Taping the World for Health. The famous wave pattern provides enhanced and patented Fingerprint [FP] technology and patented Nano Touch stimulation to the epidermis and superficial layers of the skin. Kinesio Tex Gold FP mimics a gentle human touch while providing a Micro-grip deep set adhesive, applied during the manufacturing process, resulting in improved grip and hold with less adhesive surface area.
Kinesio Tex Gold FP is a super thin athletic tape that is approximately the same thickness and the elasticity of skin and muscles. Our taping technique is based on the body’s own natural healing process and works to activate the neurological and circulatory systems. With an improved cotton weave – that employs FingerPrint (FP), Nano-touch and Micro-grip technologies – Kinesio Tex Gold FP provides a full range of motion, support and stability, without adversely affecting the natural range of motion.
Kinesio Tex Gold FP sport and medical tape is designed for a 30-40% longitudinal-only stretch that lifts the skin and provides soreness, edema and inflammation relief, as well as support for surrounding soft tissue – without restricting range of motion. Our elastic therapeutic tape is hypoallergenic and latex-free, and utilizes high-grade cotton that can be worn continuously for 3-5 days for maximum effectiveness. Our heat-activated, medical-grade acrylic adhesive is made of porous material that allows the skin under the tape to breathe and helps moisture dissipate quickly, allowing it to withstand sweating, showering and swimming.
The Kinesio Taping Association highly recommends that you consult a CKTP (Certified Kinesio Taping Practitioner) prior to applying Kinesio Tex Tape.
About Kinesio Tape
Dr. Kenzo Kase is an American-trained chiropractor, best known as the inventor of Kinesio Tex Tape and the Kinesio Taping Method. Elastic therapeutic tape has become a common modality in rehabilitation, and it started with Dr. Kase. Kinesio Tape is highly recognized in the sports arena; however, its origins were not directly related to sports. Dr. Kase recognized the need for a new approach in the 1970s when he was observing and treating rheumatoid arthritis patients.
He wanted a modality that would allow his patients to continue to receive the benefit of his treatment in-between visits, to “take his hands home with them.” Dr. Kase designed the Kinesio Taping Method to facilitate the body’s natural healing powers, and Kinesio Tape to meet the unique requirements of his method. Forty years later, his method has changed how rehabilitation is practiced. Each roll of Kinesio Tape continues Dr. Kase’s vision, by allowing patients to take the treatment home.
Enhanced Technology for Superior Athletic Performance
Why Use Kinesio Tex Gold FP?
Kinesio Tex Gold FP is backed by research and development and is made exclusively for Kinesio professionals, medical professionals and sports therapists. Our sport tape employs advanced FingerPrint (FP) technology that microscopically lifts the skin and creates a space between the skin and underlying tissues to accelerate the healing process during and after injury. Our newly improved weave pattern brings Nano-touch stimulation to the epidermis and layers beneath.
What Is Kinesio Tape Made Of?
Kinesio Tape is made of 100% high-grade cotton for comfort and breathability, and contains no latex or medications and utilizes FingerPrint, Nano-touch and Micro-grip technologies. The backing contains medical-grade adhesive made of 100% hypoallergenic acrylic that is made to withstand sweating, showering and swimming without coming off. Unlike traditional athletic tape, most Kinesio Tape applications can be worn for 3-5 days to allow the therapeutic benefits to continue, 24 hours per day.
How Is Kinesio Tape Used?
The Kinesio Taping Method is an approach to therapeutic taping that involves taping over and around muscles and joints, rather than wrapping them tightly as conventional athletic taping does. This increases circulation to the injured area, as well as lymphatic drainage, which reduces swelling, bruising and pressure on sensitive pain receptors. When worn continuously, Kinesio Tape provides support without restricting range of motion and can accelerate the healing process and limit down time.
